Professor of business completes doctoral degree

The Bowers Hall renovation isn’t the only update in the Walla Walla University School of Business this year. Johanna Attoh, assistant professor of economics and finance, recently earned her doctorate in economics from Western Michigan University.

Attoh titled her dissertation “Three Essays Assessing Global Value Chain Fragmentation on International Trade Using the World Input-Output Database,” which explores issues about world economics, specifically how fragmented supply chains affect international trade. In September 2016, she successfully defended her dissertation, adding another doctor to the School of Business faculty.

Attoh joined the WWU family for the 2014-2015 academic year and is best known for teaching Fundamentals of Economics, Business Statistics, and Principles of Macroeconomics, among other classes.
